Christchurch - Still Very Earthquakey!

A travel blog entry by stuli


The final stop on our New Zealand odyssey was Christchurch, previously a pretty Cathedral city, latterly rocked by earthquakes in late 2010 and early 2011. We'd been warned by a few people that is was still suffering a little from the effects, but we were unprepared for exactly how much those quakes had devastated the city.

The suburbs on the drive in were quite unaffected, but as we approached the centre of town the devastation was ...

Westfield Riccarton Mall :)

This morning I had my first lie in!! Yaaay! I managed to keep myself up late enough so that I was tired enough to lie in until 10am ish!! Apparently there was also an earthquake this morning.. when I say an earthquake it was literally a tremmor! I didn't feel anything and I was awake when it happened but apparently it was so light I could have thought it was just a truck driving past. I wasn't even aware of it until one of my uncles asked me if I had felt it!
